I am sitting on the sofa eating a bowl of green beans as I go through my emails. My cat jumps onto the arm, stretches her neck forward sniffing at the bowl I am holding, ears pointed outwards to the side, making her look like a feline Yoda. As I look at her, wondering what she is doing, she plunks her head face first INTO the bowl and delicately grabs a green bean, jumps back to the arm of the love seat beside me and eats it.
I have no idea what prompted this strange behaviour of green bean stealing or why she decided she could face plant into a bowl of food I was eating, but I have to admit…I did find it funny and it made me laugh. After she ate it, she jumped down, ran into the front hallway and skidded across some cardboard my son left on the floor to go to the recycle bin.
This put her into a state of cat crazy and she has been doing the speed demon runs and 180 degree direction turns for about the last 15 minutes. She flings herself from room to room after she thunders up and down the carpeted stairs, ears back and back arching as she hits the hardwood and scrambles to get her feet underneath her careening body to change directions with hairpin turns.
A cat in a mood is a hysterical thing to watch.
